Pirate thrown overboard

An Icacos man, who was shot in his chest while fighting off a gun-wielding pirate, has been credited by his brother for saving their lives following a brazen attack by Spanish-speaking men in the waters of the Gulf of Paria on Friday morning.

He was subsequently transferred to the San Fernando General Hospital.
